Ye-ah. That's the spin when you aren't getting sacks. Sacks mean that you are both getting pressure on the QB and you are finishing the job.
I remember early in Jason Taylor's career when he didn't have a sack in a couple of games. JJ called him out in a team meeting asking him "Where are you?" Sacks are VERY important. That's what is wrong with this team ... they don't finish the job (sacks, tackles, first downs, TDs, etc).

Harris, meanwhile, is a disappointment. He has two sacks in 21 games. I know Gase says sacks are unimportant and what is actually important is pass disruptions, but that is simply coach spin.
The Dolphins disrupted Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson a bunch last Thursday evening. And Watson simply got out of the pocket and proceeded to light them up with five touchdown passes.
Sacks is the thing, folks. Getting the quarterback on the ground while he has the football and is not doing any damage with it is better than making the guy uncomfortable. It’s been like that way since Adam and Eve. It will remain that way until Judgment Day.
